I told you here that the QB5 group I'm in is making zines and passing them around for each of us to work in.
I have Nathalie's right now and it's entitled Collections.
It is such a beautiful zine!
Nathalie does such incredible work with recycled materials especially....
I love it and you must go over and look at her zine on her blog.
So what collections do *I* have!!? Well.......... too many to talk about in her zine!
I'm sure that's true of all of you reading this.
Just walking through my house I see a few.
But I had to narrow it down so there would be room for the others to share their collections....
I settled on one page talking briefly, very briefly, about my collection of Hummel Wannabee** Accordion Players! I bet you've never known anyone that collected those!!! I have A LOT of them!!!
A slight nod to my buttons.
And then a two page spread about my collection of vintage black & white photos.
That was easy...... too easy ..... and most of my photos are of relatives or friends of my relatives.
When people in the family die..... I often get the old pictures that absolutely no one else wants!
So what do you collect?
Anyone got a Hummel Wannabee Accordion Player they want to sell me?
** Note on Monday the 25th... those are Hummel Wannabees (they are NOT real Hummels) They are Hummel knock-offs made in Japan and Occupied Japan!
...oh just realized I left off my bird salt & pepper shakers photo... oh well... I wouldn't want you to think I have a lot of stuff in my house...
First off....... let me just say this.......... the above picture was taken in my favorite store in existence.
The first person to leave a comment naming that store....... will win something.
I don't know WHAT....... but I'll dig up something.
Okay.... about change........... if that store changes it's entire style... I don't know what I'll do.
But I'll do something! I would be very upset.
So a couple of weeks ago I find myself driving home after staying at my daughter's house a few nights. Not often am I in the middle of Houston (big clue to name of store...right?).... with no deadline on where I have to be......... so I exited the freeway and headed to the part of town I was made to live in.... but, alas, that has never happened....
Don't you love the lamp in the above photo!!!!
I may need that in my new house!
Someone take note!!!
It's at Pottery Barn (which is not my most favorite store.... but I do like it.)
